‘Range Runners’ Sprints Its Way to SAFilm

GameStop, Inc.

Range Runners is a thriller that screens on Thursday, August 1, 2019 at the San Antonio Film Festival.

This is an edge-of-your-seat thriller that follows a young, African-American woman, endurance runner named Mel (Celeste M. Cooper) who sets out to complete the 2,200 mile long trailer on her own. Mel challenges herself along the trail, going further than her limitations until she meets two stranger men that claim to be day-hikers.

Something is quite fishy, as the men look like they have been out in the wilderness for far longer than a day and that’s when things take a turn for the worse. She is left without food and a dwindling water supply and almost zero chance of being rescued in that isolated trail. Mel has only two choices, to follower her attackers and continue on the journey or to turn back and see help.

“The role of Mel is the definition of a determined, powerful woman,” describes Cooper. “She is never going to back down and be controlled. She is determined to preserve and take back what is rightfully hers. Her entire life has been about taking back her power.”

I am definitely not a nature guy and anything with being alone in the woods terrifies me almost as much as movie musicals, so to see such a well crafted indie film that is a thriller instead of a slasher flick was quite pleasant for a change.

Cooper is fantastic as Mel, you almost forget she is playing a part. Sean Patrick Leonard’s Wayland and Michael B. Woods’ Jared really make you want to hate these guys. To think that an indie film could be this powerful without being cliche is something I have longed for from a film festival entry and Range Runners did not disappoint me in the least. The Illinois based company Fatal Funnel Films that produced Range Runners, definitely gave us a unique story that is rarely seen in American films.

The showing will be held at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts

Summary
